The General Assemblies
The Blue, the Scarlet, and the Silver have formed the backbone of MeDMUN since the conference began. These committees feature a security topic and either an economic or a social topic. The GAs are large enough to allow a variety of opinions to be presented, but small enough so that all delegates are able to participate. Rather than simulate the main committees of the UN General Assembly as many other conferences do, we have delegates participate in a more paired down General Assembly that allows them to interact with different types of topics and learn the fundamentals of Model UN.
Our GAs serve as the introduction to Model UN for most delegates and our GA staffers are trained to help ease them into Model UN.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General, Alison Shereda

The Specialized Agencies
Our Specialized Committees were begun at MeDMUN II. These committees are smaller in size, 20-30 delegates but are more competitive than our General Assemblies. These committees tackle more specific issues and can include the introduction of crisis simulations to help delegates to better understand aspects of the topics.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General for the Specialized Agencies, George Rabadi
The United Nations Security Council
Topic A: Strengthening the Security Council's Enforcement Mechanisms
Topic B: Understanding the Security Impacts of Climate Change
The Ad-Hoc: The Forum on the Use of Outer Space
Topic A: Balancing Governments and Private Interests in the Exploration of Outer Space
Topic B: Crisis
The Crisis Committees
We began simulating crisis committees at MeDMUN V. Crisis committees are 15-25 delegates and are highly competitive, best suited for delegates with some experience in crisis or highly experienced delegates looking to learn more about crisis committees. Rather than tackling a series of issues through debate and passing a resolution as a county, delegates will respond to real-time updates playing the role of historical figures.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Undersecretary General for Crisis, Nat Leach
